In the past two years, The Coworking Space Movement has exploded in Los Angeles
On the Westside alone, Weworks has opened up offices in Culver City, Play del Ray, Santa Monica, leaving several mom-and-pop coworking spaces like Coloft, Nextspace in Venice, and Hatch, to close. So how do the other small coworking spaces stay afloat?
They either have a different market, a different location or offer something that other coworking spaces don’t.
Camp at The Ranch in Mar Vista provides all three of these.
Camp is a coworking space on 12240 Venice Boulevard. Their name doesn’t lie. Their offices are very much like ” A Camp at The Ranch,” a cozy 800 foot space decorated with faux logs of wood and camp memorabilia. The space can probably hold about 8 people comfortably, so unlike Weworks, it provides an intimate location where you get to really know your coworkers.
Location: Since it’s crucially important to have a coworking space that is centrally located, this convenience, the location couldn’t be better. It ‘s located on the main drag of Mar Vista’s shops and restaurants on Venice blvd between Centinela and Grandview.
Price: Considering the average rate for monthly coworking spaces in LA, The Camp’s Rate are below average. Their monthly is $250 and conference room rental is only $25.
